Master of Science (MSc) Degree Program

The School of Communication Sciences and Disorders provides a three-year program of academic study and clinical experiences leading to a MSc degree in either speech-language pathology or audiology. Courses are normally open only to those who have been accepted as full-time students in the programs.

Students are required to attain a minimum of 72 credit hours in the Thesis Stream and 78 credit hours in the Non-Thesis Stream. Students who are interested in developing independence in conceptualizing and conducting research in communication disorders are encouraged to apply to the Thesis Stream. Application to the Thesis Stream can be made at the time of application for admission to the School or during the fall term of first year.

Extensive supervised clinical practice is required throughout the program. Much of this requirement is met by attending a 12-week practicum held during the summer between the second and third year of study and a 12-week practicum during the winter term of the third year.
